I already talked here about my project, indiexpo.
We added a new feature for the HTML5 Games made with Stencyl.

Basically it allow you to play your game with your phone (like a gamepad) thanks to an app : this
When you start a game on the website, you can scan a QR code and link the app to the game.



To integrate it inside your Stencyl game (in html5), you don't need any code or plugin.
Just use the arrow keys, X, Z and Escape keyboard keys, export to HTML5, upload the zip and your're done.

It works also with Constrcut 2. You can see a working example here.

Hope you'll enjoy ;)

Hi guys! Nice news about the indiepad!
We added a new feature: Add Player. So now, if you're playing at a multiplayer game, you can open the menù, click on Add Player... and your friends can scan the QR Code...and play together!
No more gamepad in your bag. Just your smartphone.

Do you want to add your game?
Very easy. No script and no plugin. You can upload your WebGL or Html5 and now you can set also the keys in the "Upload" page of indiexpo.
Click on "Add Player" to set the second controller. (now you can set MAX 4 Players)
Too easy and very fast ! :D

This looks pretty cool! Any way to add swipe controls in the gamepad?

It doesn't work with all pc games. it works with the online games (html5) posted on indiexpo.net. In few weeks already over 30 games added it. It turns your browser ...in a "virtual console" with free games to play :)

If you have an html5 game, try to upload. Easier done than said.
